5cm Rootball - Available for immediate despatch. Plants are between 20-25cm in height. They are like small plug plants that will get established very quickly. 

Plant 6–10 feet apart (1.8–3 m).

Subsequently pruning is similar to raspberries, canes that have fruited are cut out immediately after fruiting.

situation

If blackberry plants are in waterlogged soils for more than a few days at a time, they normally die a slow death from lack of aeration (oxygen) or from subsequent attack by root diseases.

Plants do best in a well-drained, fertile, loam soil with moderate water holding capacity. Avoid heavy clay soils.

Sometimes you can improve a less desirable site by tilling, increasing organic matter content and building raised beds.

The plant arrived within days of the order. It's a good size with a ripening berry on it. The packaging was very good too. I was very pleased and am busy eyeing up the espalier Victoria Plum next.
